The Highland distillery hosted their first hair-raising Halloween Fright Night on Friday with the staff transforming in to a horrifying hoard of ghosts and ghouls for the event.
The first of its kind in the Highlands, the event aimed to engage the local community and show the distillery in a new eerie light.
Tomatin Distillery has teamed up with award-winning Scottish chef Jacqueline O’Donnell for an evening of whisky and food pairings to celebrate Scotland’s finest produce following the recent Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight.
The star of ‘The Great British Menu’ and ‘Jak and Eddie’s Scottish Kitchen’, Jacqueline O’Donnell urged customers to swap the wine for whisky as the perfect accompaniment to a meal at the exclusive event on the 22nd September at the chef’s ‘Sisters’ restaurant in Glasgow. During the evening Jacqueline and Tomatin Distillery Manager, Graham Eunson shared insights into the pairings and explored four expressions of Tomatin single malt.
Oloroso Sherry, Caribbean Rum and the Cabernet Sauvignon. Three different Tomatin expressions were reviewed on their color, smell, palate and the finish. How did they all do? A fantastic quote from James Thurber came to mind when I looked at those three.
“Two is company, four is a party, three is a crowd. One is a wanderer.”
Highland-based Tomatin Distillery have launched a trio of special edition bottlings including a 14 year old Cabernet Sauvignon, 9 year old Caribbean Rum and 21 year old Oloroso Sherry single malt.
Each of the expressions are bottled at a strength of 46% and are set apart by the distinctive cask maturations.
The distillers’ focus on creativity shines through with a punchy medley of exotic flavours across the limited editions from the tropical explosion of the rum cask to the Oloroso sherry honeyed oak spice.
Cù Bòcan 2005 Vintage Limited Edition
Highland-based Tomatin Distillery have launched a limited 2005 vintage edition of their peated Cù Bòcan single malt.
Bottled at a strength of 50%, the whisky is stronger than its core range counterpart, and is matured in ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks. Described as having aromas of butterscotch and toffee apples with flavours of candy floss and a gentle touch of peat smoke, typical of the Cù Bòcan range, there are only 11,400 bottles of this limited edition available worldwide.
Highland-based Tomatin Distillery has teamed up with award-winning mixologist Calum Lawrie to create a series of summer whisky cocktails aimed at the growing market of female whisky drinkers.
Scotland’s national drink is enjoying a renewed popularity amongst women, particularly younger women, with some companies in the industry looking for new, innovative ways to experiment with different serves. Single malt is shaking off its previous image as a drink for the older gentleman, typically served neat or on the rocks. Women worldwide are developing a taste for the spirit and the Highland distillery wants to show off the versatility of the drink to this ‘new’ audience with their range of cocktails.
